Breaking news from Zone Institute taking place in Cleveland - D6290 Rotarian's Rock!
Thank you for your generous support of our Rotary Foundation. There are 16 Districts in our Zone and we placed 2nd and 3rd for Annual Fund Giving and Overall Giving (respectively). You are the reason why we can do good in the world.
Rotary Health and Humanitarian Outreach Projects (HHOP) work trip to Honduras in 2017 is scheduled and reservations are being accepted to go on the trip. Per person costs for travelers are estimated at $2,000 and deadline for deposit is October 25th (please see linked “Trip Announcement” for details).
You and/or your Rotary Club can help make the trip affordable to the travelers, by donating towards the water filter and latrine costs. It will also enable your club to donate to a clean water and sanitation project. We take Interact and Rotaract students on this trip and any funds donated will be especially appreciated by them in reducing their trip costs.
Total material costs for the trip in February 2017 are $4500. Grand Haven Rotary Club is donating to this need but help from other clubs would be greatly appreciated.
Your donation should be made out to HHOP (Health and Humanitarian Outreach Projects), a Rotary based 501c3. Mail your check to HHOP, c/o Dr Don Crandall, 3981 Norton Hills Rd, Norton Shores, MI 49441. Please note on your donation that the funds are for the 2017 HHOP work trip.
If you have any questions about this request or participation in the trip, please contact trip coordinator, Gail Ringelberg at 616-402-4190.
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide. I hope someone from your club can join us on the trip this year to see firsthand how lives can be changed with clean drinking water and sanitation.
